whats the big use for it? you know, combos, its real usage stuff like that.
It is useful with illusions of Granduer. You play the granduer, gain 20 life, use the donate to give it to your opponent and when they can't pay the upkeep they lose 20 life.
Donate a Thought Lash. Donate an Island while playing with Lord of Atlantis. Donate a Carnival of Souls and go infinite. Whatever.
See above. He's right. That's it. It's not, actually, a great rare. In fact, except for maybe three other cards, it sucks.
Donating a Force of Nature? And if they play green, play whatever blue cards change lands (hopefully permanently)
Donate a Lord of the Pit and Pacify or whatever on it?
Cannot we just Donate blood like normal people do?
A lot of the things mentioned were nasty, but there's a subtle explanation why Illusions is the worst.
It costs 4 mana, and it's blue; Donate costs 3 mana and it's blue. Force of Will is also blue. A lot of tutor and drawing cards are blue. The combo is blue, so you can actually afford another color.
Dark Ritual is black. Necropotence is black. Duress is black. The real tutors are black.
Get the idea?
mmm, Conspiracy --> call walls or legends, donate
how about Conspiracy naming Reflecitons, Spirit Mirror, and donate?
